Abubakar said waste is a source of contamination, particularly if it is not properly managed.
He advised residents to get waste bins and package their wastes in them, adding that throwing or dumping wastes on the roads is not a good thing particularly during the rainy season.
“Once the rain falls, it washes away the wastes, and whatever decomposes in the wastes, both the micros and macros, becomes agents of infections, flow through the rain and enter the stream and the water being consumed by people.
“This is because we noticed huge amount of wastes coming from Mararaba, Masaka get accumulated at that place. Every week, we remove no less than 200 tippers from there. So we will continue until we clear there.”
He assured that the mop up operations would continue not only in Nyanya but also in Garki Village, Jahi, Car Wash in Lugbe and so many other places.
“Contractors who were doing these things before have withdrawn their services, so we are using the little resources we have to remove them.
